Superior Private Tour in brief

Day 1: Fly to Maun, via Johannesburg

Fly overnight from London to Maun, via Johannesburg. (N)

Day 2: Fly to Makgadikgadi National Park

Early afternoon arrival in Maun, followed by an onward scenic flight to the Makgadikgadi National Park for a 2-night stay at Leroo La Tau Lodge. (L, D)

Day 3: Makgadikgadi National Park

A full day of included safari activities. These may include game drives and boat trips (when water conditions allow) to spot lions, leopards, cheetahs, hyenas, zebras and wildebeest along the course of the Boteti river. (B, L, D)

Day 4: Fly to the Okavango Delta

Take a light aircraft flight to the Okavango Delta, where you will stay 2 nights at Camp Okavango, located on the remote Nxaragha Island, which offers superb year-round waterbased safari experiences. (B, L, D)

Day 5: Okavango Delta

The magnificent Okavango Delta, one of Unesco’s newest world heritage sites, is the Earth’s largest inland delta and its labyrinth of lagoons, lakes and channels is home to a huge collection of varied wildlife. Travel by motorboat or mokoro (canoe) to track animals such as elephants, rhinos, giraffes, hippos and lions. Birdwatching, bush walks and fishing are also possible during your stay. (B, L, D)

Day 6: Fly to Chobe National Park – Savute

Enjoy another scenic flight, this time to Chobe National Park, for a 2-night stay at the Savute Safari Lodge, which arguably offers Botswana’s best game viewing experiences. (B, L, D)

Day 7: Chobe National Park – Savute

A day of land-based safari activities. The Savute region sees the second largest zebra migration in Africa: Between November and December, and again between February and April, huge numbers of the striped equids – along with their eager predators – can be found here. Wildlife sightings are strong year round however. It is also possible to visit the Gubatsa Hills, home to a number of ancient San rock paintings. (B, L, D)

Day 8: Fly to Kasane • Chobe Game Lodge

Fly north to Kasane and transfer to the Chobe Game Lodge for a 2-night stay. Although technically still within the borders of Chobe National Park, the lodge’s location near the Chobe river means it offers a distinctly different experience to Savute. (B, L, D)

Day 9: Chobe Game Lodge

With a fleet of almost silent electric powered 4×4 vehicles and boats, Chobe Game Lodge offers guests game viewing experiences without disturbing the wildlife. This often means closer encounters and more natural behaviour being observed. You are free to choose as many or as few activities today as you wish. (B, L, D)

Days 10-11: Fly home via Johannesburg

Transfer to Kasane airport and fly to the UK, via Johannesburg. (B) (N)
